    Default Sportingbet Affiliate Account Closure and Confiscation of Earnings

    Apparently, Sportingbet Affiliates will close your account and confiscate all earnings below the payment threshold if you don't bring in 3 new depositors every month.

    I had no idea until I got the email from them, but it's in their T&C's.

    I've heard of affiliate programs reducing your rev share for failing to bring depositors over 3 or 6 months, but I've never seen anything this extreme.

    The least they could do is pay out your earnings before closing the account. But I guess they are so cheap that 30 or 40 euros is a big deal for them.

    Potential affiliates, beware!

    Ouch, don't like the sound of that. Not had any problems with them myself but haven't ever gone below that threshold, not to say I won't in the future though so it's not great form is it.

    Sorry to hear that, I hate when it happens right after you invested from your time and money to add a brand to your website...
    I try to read the small prints in the T&C.

    Its a shame about your $$$, they must pay it if they close the account, but I would suggest you'll blacklist them instead and move on, they not worth the effort !

    You mean a program that a while ago changed their terms to "we are now not obligated to announce you for any changes in the ToS" and a few months later reduced the lifetime revenue to "2 years" and then a few months later changed it back to "lifetime" is now closing accounts based on a performance quota rule? I'm shocked /end of sarcasm

    Yeah screw them, blacklist and move on.
